DESIGN IN TARZANA, CALIFORNIA

When Jenni Glancy found this 1906 hacienda, she drove home and told her husband they were moving to Tarzana, California, which is 22 miles from Los Angeles.  He agreed, and the rest is history!

Always interested in antiques and older objects, Jenni found much of what decorates her home in thrift shops. She just has an eye for beautiful things that no longer have a home, and runs a business selling her finds.

The brick and window corridor, the multi-colored kitchen, and the wall of shelving were things that Jenni loved just the way they were, so she painted and decorated the home as is with her collection of finds. ENJOY!

fresh take on green, love the kitchen and little eating area...and I am such a big fan of collections and shelving...perhaps the two go hand in hand as this collection demonstrates...those boxes are so cool...would love to know the history behind them..

Can you imagine going home and telling a spouse that you've found a house & are moving. My husband would of said, "are you drinking again?" Well, not really 'that' but you get the just of it! What a marvelous home filled with such personality. The kitchen is incredible. Thanks Teresa, very fun to see Jenni's home.

We love how she decorated with thrift store finds and made the space all her own.

Especially love the banquette/bench in the kitchen! And that wild quilt in the son's room is amazing!
